What our guests say




  We had a wonderful stay at Milbanke, thank you! It is in such a beautiful location that you can’t help but relax and enjoy it!

  Excellent cottage with very good pre visit information and detail from the owner prior our visit. The cottage is secluded but well situated with around 20 minutes walk down a walking track to the village where there is the harbour, pub, and hotel as well as other places to eat. The beach is large rocks rather than sand so good shoes are needed.

    Just about the nicest cottage we've ever stayed in - and certainly the best value. The only thing we were worried about, as non-drivers, was being too isolated - but the bus service to Porlock and Minehead was excellent. We would really love the chance to visit again one day.

Beautiful cottage; if you want to get away and have peace and quiet this is the place for you. Porlock Weir is a lovely little village, with lots of walks nearby. Would definitely  recommend.

      Beautiful accommodation. Can’t recommend it enough. We have stayed twice at Lovelace and will definitely be returning.

    Set in a stunning, peaceful woodland location complete with tumbling, rocky stream immediately below cottage windows. Spotlessly clean and cosy with roaring open fire and comfortable beds. Wooded walks straight from the door and coast path to Porlock Weir close by. Very atmospheric and calming environment.

    This cottage is full of charm. It is located in a steep hill on a private toll road. The access through the toll gate is narrow and my old Ford Galaxy had little more than an inch of clearance on both wing mirrors. A bridle path runs past the side of the property but we saw just 3 sets of people all week. It is dog friendly and restricting the dogs to the kitchen and utility area was not a problem. The surrounding area is exquisite. Great eating houses a moderate walk away. A great holiday venue.

Welcome to the historic Ashley Combe Estate. Set within secluded woodland by the sea, our self-catered cottages are easily accessible and a short walk from Porlock Weir. Close to the Southwest Coast Path and Coleridge Way, they make an ideal base for exploring the rugged shoreline and wild landscapes of north Exmoor.
